there with richard ilczyszyn of lind-waldock. now that bp spread around the blame for the gulf of mexico oil spill, investors will be looking to hear rebuttals from transocean and halliburton, two companies tied to the disaster. transocean owned the drilling rig called deepwater horizon, halliburton was in charge of cementing the well. and bp was operating the lease for the macondo well. bp's internal investigation report said "...decisions made by multiple companies and work teams contributed to the accident..." which arose from a series of mechanical failures, human judgements, and engineering design... bp cited weaknesses in cement design, testing, quality assurance and risk assessment which fell under halliburton's authority. in response to the negative pressure test, the report says the transocean rig crew along with bp well site leaders reached the incorrect view that the test was successful. and that the transocean rig crew did not recognize the influx of hydrocarbons and did not act to control the well until hydrocarbons had passed through the blow out preventer and into the riser. and the
